- Lorde Premieres New Song “Liability” on Apple Beats 1
- Last week New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde unveiled the new single "Green Light", a lot of celebrities praised the song immediately.
Today (March 10), she premiered a new song "Liability" from her upcoming sophomore album "Melodrama". At the same time, She announced that the new album will be released on June 16, 2017.
The new song received its first play during Apple Beats 1, and she said in the interview with Zane Lowe, the song was inspired by Rihanna's "Higher" from her album "Anti".
The track was co-produced by Jack Antonoff.
She stated about the song;
"I’m really proud of this bit of songwriting. I feel like I got somewhere they hadn’t been before, which is always a nice feeling as a songwriter. It’s interesting because I had this realization that because of my lifestyle and what I do for work there’s going to be a point with every single person around me where I’m gonna be attacks on them in some way. If it is having to give up a little portion of their privacy or their life becoming more difficult or whatever. It was just this moment of sadness and I remember it so vividly."
- "I was in this cab alone listening to 'Higher' by Rihanna because ANTI had just come out. And I had a little cry and I was just like, 'It’s always going to be this way, at some point with everyone it’s going to be this way.' But the song kind of ended up turning into a bit of a protective talismans for me. I was like, you know what, I’m always gonna have myself so I have to really nurture this relationship and feel good about hanging out with myself and loving myself. And the tone of the melody, the way it kind of falls around, it’s almost like it’s kind of drunk or it sort of leans around, it’s got this hip-hop cadence to it."
"I love the song so much and it feels so starkly truthful to me. And I think everyone knows what that’s like, to just feel like a fucking liability."
